Participants will forge an axe, starting with a steel blank or hammer head and leaving with a finished, heat-treated, sharpened masterpiece. Each workshop is a one-time, intensive, four-hour course. All tools, raw materials, gloves, safety glasses, and ear plugs will be provided. All experience levels welcome–instructors will help as much or as little as you’d like. Participants must wear long pants, closed-toe shoes or boots, and have long hair tied back. All workshops include a meal (sausages roasted over the forges, fruit, snacks, sodas) and time at the end to throw axes at the Drunken Smithy throwing lane.
- Fees: Forging workshops – $150 to $300 depending on project selected
- $150 for single bit all steel axe
- $200 for 2-bit all steel axe
- $250 – $300 for the wooden handle Viking axe
We require a $50 non-refundable deposit at the time of reserving your spot and the remaining balance, based on what you want to forge, is to be paid the day of the workshop (paid onsite).
*NEW POLICY FOR CHILDREN IN WORKSHOPS*:
Age 16-18: Children ages 16-18 can take the workshop without an adult participant. A parent/guardian must remain onsite during the workshop–no drop-offs–and can watch from the viewing area. If the parent/guardian wants to work at the anvil with their child but does not want to make their own project, there is a $50 participation fee ($50 non-refundable deposit for the ticket online + $50 participation fee when you arrive onsite = $100 total).
Age 11-15: Children ages 11-15 must be accompanied at the workshop by an adult participant (parent/guardian who works with the child at the anvil). Both the child and the adult must reserve a ticket on our website, and each can make their own project. If the adult does not want to make their own project, there is a $50 participation fee ($50 non-refundable deposit for the ticket online + $50 participation fee when you arrive onsite = $100 total).
Age 10 & younger: Children 10 and younger are not permitted to participate in our public weekend workshops, but we’d be happy to schedule a private session for you. Please email us at email@example.com to schedule.
